iProfile Assignment – Your Diet You have looked at meals from a fast-food restaurant, now you will look at your own diet using the skills you have learned using iProfile. The first step is to keep track of your diet for two days. It would be better to use three days, and if you should do so then ten extra credit points will be assigned. Please use two ordinary days. It will not do any good to enter in a day where you barely ate or where you ate much differently from normal. A good mix is one weekend day and one weekday day. Be careful to consider the serving size of what you are eating/drinking. Students make a lot of mistakes here, because they do not know sizes. Please remember back to our assignment on Serving Sizes and review what you learned. Include everything that enters your mouth except gum and supplements or things like protein powder shakes. We want to see what your diet of real foods provides. Remember the small things like butter on the toast, honey and milk on the oatmeal, salad dressing, sugar in the coffee, alcohol, etc. Open iProfile (found on the left menu in Wiley Course Resources) Click on launch ‘Profile’ Enter your information (or see if it needs editing) being careful to put in an accurate activity level. Look on the far left and you will see “What is My Activity Level?” which will give you the parameters. If the profile asks if you want to gain or lose weight do NOT say yes. We want to see where you are right now. You can go back and change that for some really interesting information. Go to the Food Journal tab, select a date and begin entering foods. Remember the date. Remember to include all the little items – these can really add up. Be very aware of the Amount and Unit on the right hand side. These need to be accurate Now that your two days (or three) are entered, go to Reports and select ‘Food Journal Summary.’ Put the first day in the left-hand calendar and the last day in the right-hand calendar. Click on the PDF button right side center of the page. This will open a PDF page of the Food Summary that you can “Save As” to your computer and then attach to the assignment. Stay on Reports. Go to ‘Intake Compared to DRI’ For this project we are averaging the days together as we want to see what your average diet looks like. So, put in the first day on the left-hand calendar and the second day on the right-hand calendar (so it represents the range of the days you entered.) Make sure you are showing both dates on the calendar. If you happened to do three days then put the first and the last day. Click on the PDF button and ‘Save As’ to your computer. Answer the questions below using the various Reports (each section is a different report) and send in the page below with your answers highlighted in another color or font if possible. Questions for your iProfile Assignment – Your Diet – you are being asked to analyze your diet so do write good answers when asked what you think. If you write only the most basic responses like Yes, No, etc then that is not thinking about your diet and you will not receive full credit. A sentence or two on each question is the minimum. Please use a different color for the answers.
